THE CREST Ig C 4
Senior Class Prophecy
One day as I walked thru a haunted wood,
I was met by a wizard and told to be
He presented me with a crystal glass
Which told all the fates of the senior
As I gaze in the depths of this great
I see Paul Stearns eloping with Mar,
I see Bill Reid as a football star
Wearing not "77" but a big green "R",
I behold Glea Martin a teller of fate,
Who determines love as well as hate.
Paul Conway, I see, by the government
For prize or imprisonment I know naught.
And Ronald Rhodes, the man of the hour,
Has left V. Geis on an extensive tour.
We have won the Olymphic, the mile dash,
For Roy Frus his opponents did physically
Anderson and Dutton a firm quite re-
Have made an instrument perfect in
The vision comes slow but now a light
How Red Gentry for president launches
And Ora Van Hesswerk, a sailor bold,
Does successfully reign in cabin and
Now Pauline and Ralph the country do
For as players, they make hotels their
Frederick Herrman a race track king
All that he wins to his Signa does bring.
I see Elmer Homan unsurpassed in fame,
In the book of law he's written his name.
But Ah! great joy for one Ruth Snyder,
For along came John and sat down be-
And Lucile Heflen is milking a cow
On a farm owned by Leslie fwell paid
for by nowj.
A friendly portrayal is made by Joe Swett
Who fishes all day with his radio net.
Velma Case in College is leading the yells,
And 'er voice reverberates in all the wells,
And lo! Marie Landers the follies has
But none of her profits has she coined.
Jean Stickles now uses his face,
To advertise massages, he's quite an ace.
I behold Sir Kater, a pleasure indeed,
As an electrotherapentist, he's never in
But hard-hearted -Anna to the city has
To be a great nurse and do what she's
Garrel Cox on the cabinet to Washington
What the President doesn't he readily
But the vision has stopped and I turn the
To behold John Healy who's running' a
To which comes Margaret bringing his
And transporting his meals in her motor
Maurice Kenworthy stands so high in his
He's president of a National Bank.
Miss Peggy Lewis is counting the money,
Her position at present looks quite sunny.
A gloomy portrayal is shown for Miss
In the "Phi Betta Kappas" she's riding
Bessie and Anna in the Country do reign,
Telling their pupils of Belgium and Spain.
Holmes at Nargansett fishes all day,
So very few fish are left in the bay.
F. Bodeln his accomplice does haul in the
And carries the fish to the hatch-way in
An osteopath is our friend Jack Beeler,
And his patients say he's a very good
William A. Landers in a light-house does
Where 'he raises bright lights instead of
Nell Griswold alone to Guiana has gone,
To sit on a porch and gaze at the lawn.
An ambitious girl is our friend Grace
Who works all day and sleeps all night.
A good house-wife is Katherine Sisk,
With whom Harold White has taken the
But the poor glass globe from its pictures
The prophetic portrayal has verily mired,
But now it starts and begins to show,
How Harold Strey to Australia did go,
Where there he perfected a machine iall-
Which acts like a mule but looks like a
Charles Scurr and Bob Plowman the gos-
pel are preaching,

Harold's studies don't worry him,
In fact he's no worries at all.
He seems to have much fun in glass.
And for most girls he does not fall.
Margaret is very quiet,
But she doesnt seem tm mind it,
In all her studies she does very well,
And none of her knowledge would she sell.
He works hard on the Peppy Press,
To see that it doesn't get in amiss,
For all this he does not shirk,
But for his grades he must hard work.
lst Girls Glee Club
This Jzirl "Kay",
Is happy and gay.
She must have her good times
Tho in grades she does pay.
Walter is a very shy young chap,
Gets his lessons and d0esn't care a rap
What others think of studying so hard,
For his fine character he w0n't have marred
BESSIE MUDRA-Post Grad.
Bessie looks so good in blue.
Other colors suit her too.
And we know that she'll he truc,
If she is a friend to you.
Some folks prefer a Buick car.
While others like a Henry Ford
But it is very plain to see,
That Ronald likes s. Miss Twy-Ford.
